Instructions
1. Begin with a clean, flat nail brush. Apply two coats of nude nail polish.
2. For the nails that will have no glitter, apply one gem to the tip of each nail. Center and straighten the gem with the dotter tool.
3. Cover the nude-colored nails (with a gem) with one layer of top coat to set.
4. For the nails that will be bedazzled in glitter, use a clean, flat nail brush and apply the blue nail polish to the tip of the nail. Extend the blue color halfway up the nail bed.
5. With the detailing brush, blend the lines between the nude and blue colors using gentle sweeping motions. Touch up any areas as needed with the blue and nude polishes before moving on to the next step.
6. Using the non-wipe top coat, apply a layer of top coat over the ombre (blue and nude) nail.
7. Next, apply three gems down the center of the nail bed. Use the dotter tool to straighten the gems and align to the center of the nail.
8. Next, place the ombré nail over the plastic tray and dust the entire nail with glitter.
9. Using the nail brush, lightly brush off excess glitter onto the tray.
